[VB] VB2005 Power Pack Released

Microsoft released the Visual Basic 2005 Power Pack today.

It has two components. One component makes it easier for people who are still using Visual Basic 6.0 to use Windows Forms in their Visual Basic 6.0 applications. I like'll encourage more people who are using VB6 to experiment with VB2005, and experimenters will migrate.

The other component lets you print a form like you could in VB6.

Both are fully supported by Microsoft, and are welcome additions to the VB arsenal. That said, "Power Pack" is a bit strong for two components. Maybe "Power Pair"...nah.
